vanilla

My friend sent me some vanilla beans from Hawaii. What better way to showcase than to make some vanilla ice cream.

vanilla ice cream with chocolate chip cookies
This may have been a little too creamy. I know, is there really such thing? But the mouthfeel was a little too rich, like it coated your mouth with a film. It was a 2/1 ratio of cream to milk, so maybe next time I'll do half and half. I had some chocolate chip cookie dough in the freezer, so I baked some up to eat with the ice cream. Very yummy!
